Some questions about Apache's .htaccess file
I'm looking for someone who is familiar with .htaccess.
I need a list of commands that can be used in the .htaccess file, in particular formatting.
Is this possible
The three questions I have are:
1. Is there a way within the .htaccess file to format the text that is displayed. I would like to make it a little larger and maybe bold it.
2. Is it also possible to make the text line up with the centre of the icon. Currently the text lines up with the bottom of the icon which looks a bit untidy.
3. I have also struck a problem with Descriptions. If the majority of letters of two filenames are the same, it seems to only recognise a limited number of letters in the filename. See the two filenames below, they should be treated differently but they are not.
When using the AddDescription command in .htaccess the same description is displayed for both files although the description is different, or only one description is displayed against one file.
Go here to see what I mean: http://www.smokey01.com/grant/
AddDescription "This is Filename Number Two" ThisIsFilenameNumberTwo.txt
AddDescription "This is Filename Number One" ThisIsFilenameNumberOne.txt
If I reduce the filename lengths to ThisOne.txt and ThisTwo.txt it works fine. How do I make it test the full filename to determine the correct descriptions?
This is the entire contents of my .htaccess file:
